The Best of 2012

My new book is available on  News Print Poetry: The Best of 2012 

It was fun going back and reviewing the year in poetry. The hard part was choosing which poems to include in the anthology. They are all the best.

I ended up including 179 poems. I selected those that concerned important events, those that worked particularly well as poems, and those that just tickled my fancy.  

I hope my readers will want to have the hard copy. It will be fun to reread the poems in coming years and remember the events of 2012. 

It  makes a great gift for someone born in 2012 or someone with any significant life event (marriage, graduation, etc. during the year.)  

The poems are taken from news stories in the Orlando Sentinel so many of the poems are Florida-centric or Central Florida-centric. It make a nice hostess gift when you sty with friends or family in Florida, a nice  housewarming gift for a new Florida resident, or a nice gift for Floridians to give to the folks "up north."

Further, your purchase of this book will be your gift to me. The blog was a labor of love for 12 months, but earning a little money from my "labor-of-love" would be nice.
